The investment seeks capital appreciation.
The fund primarily invests in the common stocks of companies of any size whose stock prices the portfolio managers believe to be undervalued. It may also invest in foreign securities, which may include investments in emerging markets. The fund may invest its assets in derivatives, which are instruments that have a value derived from, or directly linked to, an underlying asset, such as equity securities, fixed-income securities, commodities, currencies, interest rates, or market indices, as substitutes for securities in which the fund invests.
The investment seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation.
The fund will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets (including any borrowings for investment purposes) in companies whose market capitalization (number of shares outstanding multiplied by share price), at the time of purchase, falls within the range of the companies in either the S&P MidCap 400 Index or the Russell Midcap Value Index.
